Lady Gaga has revealed her new curvier figure is down to weight gain, not pregnancy.
The Poker Face singer has recently been snapped looking slightly bigger than usual - sparking rumours that she is expecting her first baby, with Kelly Osbourne among those joining in the speculation.
But Gaga has now announced that she piled on the pounds "eating pasta and pizza" at her dad's restaurant, reports The Huffington Post.
Gaga, 26, told radio host Elvis Duran: "I'm dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds.
"And you know I really don't feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It's hard because it's a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don't like that. So I'm trying to find a new balance."
The star, who is dating The Vampire Diaries' Taylor Kinney, explained that she can't resist eating the Italian food at her father's Manhattan eatery.
"It's so amazing... it's so freaking delicious, but I'm telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I'm, like, I've got to go where I can drink green juice," she said.
Earlier this week The Sun reported that Kelly Osbourne suspected Gaga was pregnant. Kelly apparently said on Alan Carr's chat show that she began wondering about Gaga when the Born This Way singer stopped bleaching her hair and wore a burka to London Fashion Week.
